New to Blender. How would I print on a 3D Printer?

New to Blender. How would I print on a 3D Printer?

Postby Redwood Elf » November 13th, 2014, 12:49 pm

OK, my Dad got me a Dremel 3D printer as an early Christmas present, and before I use a lot of the material it comes with, I'd like to learn how to create something in Blender and print it in solid form.

Does anyone know how to do this, and is there a good video tutorial on the correct procedure? Thanks!

Hi!

Yes, there are tutorials that show you how to do it, but if youre new to blender you should learn the basics first.
Visit this link for a tutorial on how to prep your models for 3D printing:

That is a really awesome Christmas present! I do keep resource links for various topics, so here's what I have for 3D printing. Not all are free and I haven't watched/read all of them, so I can't make specific recommendations, but these should be a good starting point.

Free videos:
Blender and 3D Printing, Sardi Pax
Modeling for 3d Printing with Shapeways, BlenderCookie
Intro to 3D Printing using Blender, BlenderConf2014
Tools and Infrastructure for 3D Printing, Aeva Palecek, BlenderConf2013
3D Printing Setup in Blender, Benjamin Morgan

Not Free DVDs/Books

Oh, and welcome to DS! :wave:
